Trump Hits Back Against RINO John Boehner After Low Blow Slam in New Book Regarding Capitol Riot and More
Former U.S. House Speaker John Boehner (R) reportedly slammed former President Donald Trump in new book, specifically over his alleged handling of the January 6th Capitol Riot incident. Axios reported:
“NEW: Former House Speaker John Boehner continued his attacks on the modern Republican Party in a new book excerpt, accusing Trump of inciting “that bloody insurrection for nothing more than selfish reasons.
In a nod to what he famously labeled Jim Jordan, Boehner also addresses members of Congress involved in pushing Trump’s false claims about the election: “The legislative terrorism that I’d witnessed as speaker had now encouraged actual terrorism.””

Former President Trump hit back hard against Boehners slams in an email statement from Jason Miller, where he calls Boehner a “swamp creature”.
“I’ll admit I wasn’t prepared for what came after the election — Trump refusing to accept the results and stoking the flames of conspiracy that turned into violence in the seat of our democracy, the building over which I once presided.” The former House Speaker also wrote:
“Watching it was scary, and sad. It should have been a wake-up call for a return to Republican sanity.” Nodding to the divisions between the parties in Congress now, he writes, “Whatever they end up doing, or not doing, none of it will compare to one of the lowest points of American democracy that we lived through in January 2021.”
It’s not unclear for people like Boehner to capitalize off of the few moderate fans they have left in the center left and center right of both parties. Many of these people are looking to make a quick buck of the angry people who are unhappy with former President Trump’s agenda and will use anything they can to attack him, including the unfortunate events of January 6th.
The Political Insider reported in part:
The cherry on the maturity cake for Boehner came in the audio version of the book where Boehner felt compelled to make the comment, “Oh, and Ted Cruz, go f— yourself.”
“You know yesterday, John Boehner made some news,” Cruz said. “He suggested that I do something that was anatomically impossible.
Time will tell how many copies of Boehner’s new book sell, as it is slated to be released on the 13th of this month.
